.dwc File Extension

Developer: Emulex
File type: Emulex DWC Firmware Update File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dwc. Files with the file extension .dwc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dwc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dwc file?

An Emulex DWC firmware update file contains code created by Emulex developers that can execute and start the update process required by the corresponding Emulex hardware device. These Emulex DWC firmware update file is implemented with proprietary encoding specifications developed by Emulex for the the DWC format. These DWC files are affixed with the .dwc extension and are associated to particular firmware versions integrated into specific Emulex hardware devices. Emulex manufactures network devices like routers, modems, switches and bridges. When a file in the DWC format is initialized, the firmware of the Emulex network device executes the code stored in the DWC file to update the firmware version of the Emulex device, and this process does nothing to the post code, but rather just accesses and changes certain OS components and kernel codes required by the firmware update and the Emulex device. The eMule software can be used to download and use these DWC files, and there are versions of the eMule program for Microsoft Windows-based systems and Linux platforms. There is also a version of eMule for Mac systems.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dwc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dwc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
